We want our students to actively engage in the learning process by accepting responsibility, demonstrating respect for themselves and others, and strive to achieve their personal best. The Roberts School staff has high expectations for our students. It is our belief that our students can learn, and meet high standards. We also believe it is important that our school be a safe, clean and stimulating environment. The ultimate goal of the RES staff is to help our students to learn the essential knowledge and social behaviors, so as adults, they will be able to compete in the job market, be good contributing citizens, and live good productive lives.
